Lyrics:

Out for a ride, one Father’s day, stopped to have myself a beer.
Wasn’t planning on staying all that long, then I saw her on the stage.
She was traveling alone, she didn’t look very old.
But I could tell she was tough. By the songs she sang and the stories that she told.
I sat and watched her play. She’d say “On with the show”.
“Hey bartender” and “The last goodbye”. “You’re all that matters”. “Can’t save them all”.
The weekend whiskey and the workday wine.

She’s sweet and tough, tender and rough.
The bartender might be her biggest fan.
She’s a bad girl, doin’ the best she can.

Dark haired devil, angel in her eyes. Laughing way, way too loud.
It wasn’t how she looked that got me hooked.
But the short skirt and boots did catch my eye.

I took a ride one Father’s Day, the day I met Katie Grace.
I hope she doesn’t mind I stole some of her lines.
Maybe we’ll meet again someday.

She’s sweet and tough, tender and rough.
I might be her biggest fan.
She’s a bad girl, doin’ the best she can.
She’s a bad girl. She’s a bad, bad girl doin’ the best she can.
